    Hello Panel Moms! We are coming the week of Thanksgiving in 2013 with a group of 8 adults and 5 children age range from 11 to 4 yrs old. We are looking at staying somewhere between or close to Magic Kingdom or Epcot. Where would you recommended?

    Hi, Tanya!

    How exciting to be planning a vacation for your group!  You will all have so much fun exploring all Walt Disney World has to offer.

    If you choose to be close to the Magic Kingdom, there are 3 resorts located right on the monorail line.  These Deluxe Resorts offer you the ultimate in convenience for getting to this magical theme park - you are just a short monorail ride away!  Another great choice would be the Wilderness Lodge which is a quick boat ride to the Magic Kingdom.  I think this would be a great choice with a large group, as you can select any room type from a Standard Room to a Deluxe Villa that has multiple bedrooms and full kitchen. 

    If you think being close to Epcot is a better idea for your group, there are 3 beautiful Deluxe Resorts located on The Boardwalk where you can take a boat to Epcot or even walk there.  There is the Yacht Club, the Beach Club, and the Boardwalk Inn.  All are lovely resorts situated on the very festive Boardwalk which comes alive in the evenings with entertainment and fun.  Staying on the Boardwalk also puts you in close proximity to Hollywood Studios. 

    Have everyone in your travel party browse the website at the resort choices, and hopefully you can all decide on what will be the most fun for your group.  If I were coming for the fun, I would choose Wilderness Lodge or the Beach Club, but it is up for you to decide on the winning resort!  Good luck

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
